Women in Kathmandu, Nepal, knit these unconventional, colorful winter mittens from pure wool. A single artisan is responsible for the item from start to finish, from casting on the first stitch to the hand-embroidered accents.


The mitten flap can be folded over and secured with a coconut-wood button to leave fingers free, or folded over for warmth while still leaving a small exposed hole in the thumb open to enable texting or typing on a cell phone.


Handmade in Kathmandu, Nepal. 100% wool. Total Height (including mitten flap): 11"; Palm Circumference at base of thumb: 8 1/4"; Cuff Opening: 7.5"; Weight: 14.5 oz. One size fits most.


Hand wash or dry clean.


When Icelandic designer Gerður Kristjansdóttir was traveling in Nepal more than 15 years ago, she met a group of artisan knitters whose exceptional knit quality, dedication to their artistry, and craft heritage reminded her of the strong knitting tradition in her home country. Recognizing the opportunity to bring these women’s work to a wider audience, she helped set up a cooperative that would provide the artisans with a flexible and stable work environment, and enable them to create the kind of non-traditional designs that Gerður knew would be a hit in the U.S. and Europe.


Since the partnership began, 11 knitting centers have been established where women can come together and work cooperatively if they choose, or they can work at home while keeping an eye on their children. Knitters receive free healthcare, and many of their children’s education is funded through a scholarship fund set up by the cooperative.

Comments about Kamala Convertible Mittens:

I may look a little dorky wearing the hat but I would rather be a warm dork than having my ears frostbit in the sub-freezing temperatures. The mittens are really convenient, I really like the fingerless+mitten options. They are warm also.

Some outlet adapters will let you plug in your laptop, phone charger, or razor anywhere from Miyazaki to Marrakech, but if you’re visiting a country that uses a different standard voltage, you could end up with fried appliances or worse. Our Swiss-designed combination adapter, power converter, and dual USB charger solves that problem. The slider system means you’re covered in more than 150 countries. The USB chargers work at full power, so you and your travel companion can recharge simultaneously. It even works with power-hungry hair dryers. Fits two- or three-prong plugs up to a maximum total of 2,500 watts, and all USB devices.
